Life has gotten in the way of most stitching so far this week. So in the evening when things quiet down, I decided to work on this tiny Christmas Tree by Mindy. (I got 2 small Christmas canvases by Mindy when Pocket Full of Stitches had a one day sale on everything Mindy.)
I’m using 5 shades of turquoise from DMC and 2 colors of Kreinik gold #8 braid for the stitching. Most of the stitching will be done in basketweave using 3 plies of floss. I started by going around the center design with DMC #3811, the lightest shade of turquoise. I also stitched 2 lines across the design above the tree and just below the top of the tree with the same light floss. And then,to finish off the floss I had left, I stitched two of the small rectangles at the top in Cashmere stitch. I went around the center design again, using 3 plies of DMC Blanc floss. That’s as far as I got the first evening. I’ll try to do a few strands of floss each night and be back in a few days with an update.
